First some quick background...last year for the first time ever I did not have a Saab in the driveway. Had to part with my 2000 9-5 aero with 265k miles....so last weekend my wife brought home a photo of a 96 900 se turbo convertible for sale. What a wife.
The car...146k miles, recently has new front struts, clutch cable and all fluids changed. My last 5spd was a 89 900, so it's been a while since I have driven a manual trans. Transmission seems to shift ok, but the clutch needs to be all the way to the floor and the throw is very short. Is this normal??? I have put 300 miles on her since Tuesday and the cars seems in good sharp for her age and I have gotten use to the short throw on the clutch, but want to make sure all is fine before I feel same teaching the wife how to drive the 'new Saab.'
Is a short throw in the clutch normal...Thanks in advance.
